Good morning from The San Francisco Yacht Club in Belvedere California where the sun is shining but the tension is mounting as the international fleet ready themselves for the first day of racing.

It is pretty windless here at the yacht club right now as the teams make final preparations for what is scheduled to be a three race day.

The race committee tell us that they are expecting light breezes by the scheduled race time at 1200 local time but these are expected to build steadily to 10 to 12 knots by 1300 and then up to 14 to 16 knots as the day progresses.

 

Fracassoli Crowned European Champion - Toniste Wins Corinthian Division

The final act of the 2011 Böklunder Melges 24 European Championship, the closing prizegiving ceremony is taking place right now. 

Thanks for watching the blog this week, we hope you have enjoyed our coverage of the regatta and we look forward to your company at the next major Melges 24 event soon.

For now goodbye from Aarhus, Denmark!

It's time for a beer!

Overall Results are here:

Corinthians

That's all from the race course here in Aarhus.  A very big thank you to our Race Committee and our Jury for their sterling service in getting all ten races in the schedule completed and for some great racing.

We'll have more updates on the outcome of that Corinthian protest back ashore and from the prize giving so stand by for more later.

In the Corinthian Division Lenny beat Storm Capital Racing by a couple of places.  Both crossed the line flying protest flags so we have to wait to see the outcome of that before we can confirm our Corinthian Champion.
